Hey Ultimate Blog Partiers! :D Nice to Meet You!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

What is the UBP - Ultimate Blog Party?

Hey, I'm Jenni! I live in North Carolina with my actor husband. We'll be married 2 years in May! We met in December 2007, got engaged 10 weeks later, and married 10 weeks after that! Pretty fast!! :)

We love to TRAVEL tons (which is good because our family is all over the US!), we watch a TON of movies, and we LOVE food!! :D My hubby is acting almost full-time and I create craft courses teaching step-by-step instructions for fun things like Quilling and Tutu Making! I love working from home and all the time I have to spend with my friends enjoying beautiful North Carolina!


Here's a recent pic of my hubby and I at a friend's Oscar party!


I am in the process of launching MissTutu.com teaching moms how to make Tutu Skirts and Tutu Dresses (plus accessories) for their little girls!


Even running a Mom Blogger Contest for $100 CASH to help spread the word! :)


We love taking roadtrips in our Vette! (Especially with the top off!)
This picture was last summer before I chopped off ALL that hair!


And here's our cat, my baby! :) Chandler
(named after Matthew Perry's FRIENDS character since I'm a huge fan of the show!)
He is NOT a huge fan of the tutu I tried to get him to model however. :D



Here are a few of my favorite things....
BATHS - recently addicted and looking to buy a house with a huge garden tub! :)
CARBS - but they don't like my waist and booty! I'm trying to quit!!
BABIES - we don't have any yet but I'm getting a new brother-in-law ANY day now!!
MOVIES - one of the fun things my hubby and I love to do together
FAMILY and CHURCH FAMILY - blessed with many amazing people in my life!
BEING ONLINE - I'm never more than a foot from my laptop 24/7 :D
CRAFTS - I regularly spend a small fortune in Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and JoAnn's


Not sure what else to write about so how about I share my favorite cookie recipe so you can make some for the PARTY! ...

How to Make These EASY and DELICIOUS Pumpkin Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Please enjoy them and have a big bite for me! :)

Soft Pumpkin Cookie Recipe:
1 C. sugar
1 C. canned pumpkin
1/2 C. softened butter
2 C. flour (try using wheat or spelt flour for a healthier version!)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon or pumpkin pie spices
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C. raisins or chocolate chips or nuts

Heat oven: 375.
Mix sugar, pumpkin, butter.
Stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Mix in raisins, nuts, chocolate chips.
Drop spoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet; bake until light brown (8-10 min)
Optional vanilla frosting: (they are great even without this!):
3 C. powdered sugar and 1/3 C. butter or margarine, softened.

Beat in 1 1/2 tsp vanilla and about 2 tsp. milk (or water) until smooth and spread on cookies.

Some substitution suggestions:

Try Smart Balance (for baking) instead of butter if you want a dairy-free version of these cookies.

Use spelt flour or wheat flour for a healthier cookie.

Add dried cranberries and chocolate chips to the batter.

Add stevia as a sweetener instead of using sugar (check your container of stevia to see the conversion - do NOT use a full cup of stevia; its MUCH sweeter than sugar!) :)

PS - remember to try the batter before you cook it - YUMMY!! :)

Here's the prize I donated for UBP 10...hope you win!! :D

  35. Thanks for the comment! I need a little girl to put a tutu on soon otherwise my co-workers daughters are going to be spoiled... Every time I go into JoAnn's I come out with more idea's than I have time. I would love to learn more about quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks for stopping by Milk N Honey, Jenn. You are so cute with your hubby. Love the recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks for stopping by my blog! When I saw your cat's name was Chandler, I immediately wondered if it was after THE Chandler from Friends. I think I've seen every episode at least twice, and can quote most of them. Love it!

    It's so cool that you can make and share all of those things. I have a friend who lives in the area of the Biltmore and you and her would make a great pair with all of your craftiness and baking and such.

    I wish I had someone to make a tutu for - but I have a son and a nephew...no little girls...yet! Maybe one day your tutorial will come in handy, though!

    ReplyDelete
  38. wow!! cute cat and his tutu! that made me giggle a bit! i gotta try those cookies, they look yummalicious!!! AWW, I hope I will have a girl one day. I have 2 BOYS! Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific weekend!!

  81. Thanks for visiting me! Glad to party with you!

    These pumpkin cookies sound delicious. I like that you added substitutes. Do you or have you substituted whole wheat flour in your baked goods? I've made good cakes with whole wheat flour, but not cookies. They usually come out dry and kind of flavorless. Any tips?

    Pumpkin is full of protein and fiber! I love recipes with pumpkin in them. I recently discovered a pumpkin banana mouse pie from Ina Garten and everyone loved it. I will never make plain pumpkin pie again!

  106. Thank you for stopping by my UBP post! That picture of your cat made me laugh out loud. Literally! I have two monsters - er, cats of my own. I am also addicted to the internet. Once upon a time I had a BlackBerry, but during an unfortunate episode of Pregnant Brain I washed it in the pocket of my pants. My husband was not upset, because he called the BlackBerry Husband #1. Yesh.

  120. Just stopping by from the UBP! :)

    A little about me: I’m a homeschooling SAHM mom of two littles (3 & 1.5). I’m a born-again Christian, and I’m currently working on my MA in Ministry. I’m not your typical “mommy blogger”, but I enjoy reading mommy blogs just the same.

    Happy UBP!

  146. Hi, thanks so much for visiting me during your UBP travels! I love the cat in the tutu. It reminds me of my daughter's favourite book, "Chester" (Chester gets put in a pink tutu after trying to take the story over from the author, Melanie Watt). I'm going to have a look and see if I can make a tutu or two because both my girls would love them!

  148. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog for the party. I'm doing all my commenting here at the end, trying to play catch-up (as usual.) I, too, have a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe that I love (the recipes seem similar, although I frost mine too. They're so good, both my mom and I only make them in October and November so that we don't binge on them all year round and grow accordingly!) Hope you had fun at the party! If I have a little girl, I'll be sure to come back and make her a costume!
